My Old Baby's Room

Today I'm showing you my "old" baby's room from my previous home.   The room was so cute and I Loved it! Although, I Love my new baby's even room more.  Before I show you that, take a look at the old one.
While we lived in our previous home, My ever-so-talented mother came for a visit.  She lives far away from me. On one of her visits, she painted a mural in my baby's room {actually she did many murals in that home.} She also made the bedding for baby's crib & sewed the window valance, made a table topper & completely recovered my chair & ottoman.

That was about 7 years ago.  Since then, she has completely recovered the chair again, made all new bedding, a new table topper & new curtains. I'll post the NEW room soon. Think: black, white, blue, polka-dots & zebra print!
See the stuffed animal hanging from the tree? That was a suggestion from my mother's cousin, who came for a visit. I LOVED the idea! So I nailed the stuffed monkey "climbing the tree."

Before my mother came out, I had started the mural.  She came in and finished the job, as I don't know the first thing about shading.  That explains why my toy closet mural has no shading.

:)
I bought unfinished finials {I liked them unfinished, so I kept them that way} and screwed them into the trim to achieve this look on the valance. 
and that is my "old" baby's room. Check back soon to see my NEW baby's room.
